With the Gopher's New Year's Day matchup against Missouri in the Citrus Bowl on the horizon, and the BCS playoffs less than a week away -- it's time for the college football bowl games to start getting a whole lot better. Here's the schedule for this weekend.

Today (Saturday, 12/27):

  • Military Bowl - Cincinnati vs. Virginia Tech (1 PM) on ESPN.
  • Sun Bowl - Arizona State vs. Duke (2 PM) on CBS.
  • Independence Bowl - Miami vs. South Carolina (3:30 PM) on ABC.
  • Pinstripe Bowl - Boston College vs. Penn State (4:30 PM) on ESPN.
  • Holiday Bowl - Nebraska vs. USC (8 PM) on ESPN.

The NFL's final week of the regular season headlines tomorrow's football action, but plenty of bowl games return Monday, and run throughout the week.

Go Gophers!
